Neighbors of a radio tower in FLOYD, NY say that excessive radiation from the facility is causing health problems, and one family has effectively moved out of its house as a result.
The LLOYD family, which lives in a home near the tower of EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION Christian Country WOKR (GOD'S COUNTRY)/REMSEN-UTICA, noticed that changes at the facility on APRIL 16th began to send the signal over TV and on radio frequencies across the dial, and STEVE LLOYD told the UTICA OBSERVER-DISPATCH that he and his wife began experiencing headches, diarrhea, nausea and skin blisters.
The LLOYDS say that they can't stay in their house for more than 30 minutes a day and have moved to a camp on KAYUTA LAKE while the problems are investigated; LLOYD has provided local news media with a report from MID-STATE COMMUNICATIONS purporting to show excessive radiation levels.
